Song of Solomon 21 I am a ▼ rose of ▼ Sharon, A lily of the valleys. ▼
▼ 1) Heb habazzeleth , the autumn crocus 2) Or the plain2 As a lily among thorns, So is my love among the daughters. 3 As the apple-tree among the trees of the wood, So is my beloved among the sons. I ▼ sat down under his shadow with great delight, And his fruit was sweet to my taste. ▼
▼ 1) Heb delighted and sat down etc4 He brought me to the ▼ banqueting-house, And his banner over me was love. ▼
▼ 1) Heb house of wine5 Stay ye me with ▼ raisins, refresh me with apples; For I am sick from love. ▼
▼ 1) Heb cakes of raisins6 ▼ His left hand is under my head, And his right hand doth embrace me. ▼
▼ 1) Or, Let his left hand be etc7 I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, By the ▼ roes, or by the hinds of the field, That ye stir not up, nor awake my love, Until ▼ he please. ▼
▼ 1) Or gazelles 2) Or it ; Or she8 The voice of my beloved! behold, he cometh, Leaping upon the mountains, Skipping upon the hills. 9 My beloved is like a ▼ roe or a young hart: Behold, he standeth behind our wall; He looketh in at the windows; He glanceth through the lattice. ▼
▼ 1) Or gazelle10 My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. 11 For, lo, the winter is past; The rain is over and gone; 12 The flowers appear on the earth; The time of the ▼ singing of birds is come, And the voice of the turtle-dove is heard in our land; ▼
▼ 1) Or pruning of vines13 The fig-tree ripeneth her green figs, And the vines are in blossom; They give forth their fragrance. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away. 14 O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, In the covert of the steep place, Let me see thy countenance, Let me hear thy voice; For sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely. 15 Take us the foxes, the little foxes, That spoil the vineyards; For our vineyards are in blossom. 16 My beloved is mine, and I am his: He feedeth his flock among the lilies. 17 ▼ Until the day ▼ be cool, and the shadows flee away, Turn, my beloved, and be thou like a ▼
▼ 3roe or a young hart Upon the ▼
▼ 4mountains of ▼
▼ 5Bether. ▼
▼ 1) Or When the day is cool 2) Or break ; Heb breathe 3) Or gazelle 4) Or mountains of separation 5) Perhaps, the spice malobathron
